Weekly Poll (11)


New Florida legislation seeks to require mandatory building inspections for all apartment and condo buildings taller than three stories and larger than 3,500 square feet. The inspections would be required once a building is 30-years-old and every 10 years after. Do you believe this time frame for inspections is reasonable?


In 2021, the Florida Building Codes Act was amended to authorize any government entity with the authority to enforce the building code to perform virtual inspections as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. In March, New York City implemented a similar policy with a new Remote Video Inspections program for construction inspections. How quickly do you believe policies officially authorizing virtual or remote inspection will be adopted on a national scale?
